The informative data miner NWPlayer123 has noticed something extremely interesting in the user agreement for the forthcoming Nintendo Switch Sports. The game license mentions AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution upscaling technology being used in Nintendo Switch Sports which could provide Nintendo with a newly added in-game performance boost. PC Gamer has a good explanation of what could be achieved with Nintendo Switch Sports using FidelityFX Super Resolution upscaling technology. No other Nintendo Switch game thus far has used the impressive technology and it will also be available on the forthcoming Steam Deck handheld system from Valve.
“AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology is a pretty darn good way to hand yourself a performance boost in-game without really having to do much for it. You don’t have to spend any money, at least. There is a slight degradation in visual fidelity with FSR enabled, as you’re technically lowering the resolution then using mathematical magic to scale it back up again at less cost, but when done right you’d be hard pressed to notice it in the thick of in-game action.”PC Gamer
